    Leaks not withstanding, Beyoncé’s new album is officially out. Stream Renaissance below.

    Marking the highly anticipated follow-up to 2016’s Lemonade, Beyoncé previewed Renaissance by sharing the statement, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time for the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

    Just hours before the release of Renaissance, Beyoncé confirmed she has two more albums on the way. “This three act project was recorded over three years during the pandemic,” she wrote on her website. “A time to be still, but also a time I found to be the most creative.”


    Renaissance features the single “BREAK MY SOUL,” which we promptly named Song of the Week. In perusing the album’s full list of credits, we can see the artist worked with the likes of JAY-Z, Pharrell Williams, Terius “The-Dream” Gesteelde-Diamant, Nile Rodgers, and Drake (who has a writing credit on “Heated”) for the project. Check out its artwork, tracklist, and full list of contributors below.
